Not to sound pessimistic, but for many of us, it’s just a matter of time before the coughs, sneezes, fevers and more manage to get the best of us. Keeping healthy during this time is extra important!

 

It isn’t until we fall ill that we realize just how important our immune system is. Unable to be seen by the naked eye, the immune system never stops working. We may take vacations, but our immune system doesn’t. That said, it’s important to give your immune system exactly what it needs in order to work at peak performance. Exercise, rest and good nutrition are all vital to keeping your defenses working.

 

There are several nutrients that assist your immune system in fighting off foreign invaders. These include protein, zinc, selenium and vitamins A, C and E. Although helpful, a multi-vitamin doesn’t give you the same nutritional impact as wholesome foods can. Think nuts, citrus fruits, cruciferous vegetables, beans and lean meats for starters. By eating a well-balanced diet, you can ensure adequate intake of all these nutrients and thus, a working immune system.
